In other Urban Outfitters designer collab news, high-end jeweler Erickson Beamon will be launching a lower-priced line in the UK. Per Fashionista: "Erickson Beamon's revealed that their own more affordable line will be available in Urban stores first, as soon as the end of the month, in the UK. The Erickson Beamon line will range from £88 to £288, making it by far the most expensive jewelry to ever hit Urban Outfitters..." Uh, yeah, that is ridiculously expensive, especially since the blog aptly notes, it looks "like the work of a BeDazzler and hot glue gun." [Fashionista]
